    Wow! They sure are "gutsy" for their age! I worry thier mom and her JW friends will put major guilt trips on them and make them feel they are "bad".

    They have already tried to guilt them and it doesn't work... generally it ends with the kids getting upset, calling me, and asking me to come pick them up from their mom's house.

    This type of post is my absolute favorite. Congratulations on a job well done. You are truly blessed.

    They are smart children they have intuited that there is nothing good to be had from the JWs. Children understand more than we think they do. It's not just the boring meetings but also the lack of real love.

    I look at your fast exit and see your path as the "road not taken". (by me)

    I'm so happy for you. I wish you and yours the very best.

    Wow I am really surprised. I remember your earlier threads. You are very lucky. What did your wife do when she found out he threw all his meeting clothes in the trash?

    I sure hope they get the opportunity to speak up for themselves during the custody hearing.

    Awesome! If you ever have the opportunity let the know there is a board of ex jw's and those in contact with jw who are very proud of them! Kudo's to the kids! Hope it goes allright when they are with mom though. The oldest is old enough to be learning about religious freedom in school, heck, even the youngest is if they are in public school and have to do the Mayflower stuff every year.

    She had a fit at first but then knew that she couldn't respond too dramatically or it would just drive him further away. Now she has given up and prefers to present it to them as "take life's water free" - in other words, I can't force it on you so someday you might change your mind... good luck to her with that one...
